    Or, if you're looking for a free alternative, try NeoOffice.
    PC: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 2 GM RAM, Total 750 GB HDD, Windows Vista Business (For gaming), Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron (64-bit), Slackware 12 (For GTK# coding)
    Mac: 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD, Mini

    Pages works like a DREAM! I do not know what i would do without it. I would definatly recommed for you to buy iWork '06 (or wait for iWork '07 this january) instead of Office for Mac.

    Office runs kind of slow under Rosetta. It takes about fifteen bounces on the dock to open Word. Pages opens in a blink.

    Definatly get iWork '06 or '07.

    If you dont want to pay, I have heard NeoOffice is great.

    I think Davis is going on the (pretty safe) assumption that a new edition of iWork will be released in January, since '05 and '06 were announced in January of their respective years.

    Pages is a nice package, but highly impractical as a general word processor.

    I've created neat brochures and great looking resumes using Pages, but for everyday word processing I prefer to stick with Word: it's much simpler and has the formatting features I'm admittedly used to from using Word on Windows.

    And for what it's worth, I just clicked the Word icon on my MacBook (Core Duo, 2 GHz, 2 GB memory) and the program came up in two "icon bounces." Pages came up in five.

    i enjoy using pages and MS Office, but i guess i am more used to office than pages. i tried using pages exclusively when i first got my iMac, but for some reason it does not format well when bouncing between the two. things saved in pages as a .doc did not come out quite right in word.
    From a G4 400MHz to an Intel Mac Mini to iMac Core Duo to a Macbook Pro 2.6GHz.............gotta love Apple!

    I use the Windows version of Microsoft Office running on Crossover for Mac. However I will be buying Mac Office 2007 once it comes out, as long as it has the ribbon interface.

    You actually like that? I hated it!

    I understand that a more 'OS X' styled Office is due for the Mac.

    For my dissertation I used OpenOffice.org. I don't have (and don't want, tbh) an MS Office license and Word irritates me, and although I would have _loved_ to use pages, it has no outlining functions or anything; only the most basic of auto-numbering. If you're writing stuff for college, Pages may not be up your alley at all.

    It's what we call a "forklift upgrade." You have to buy the whole package.

    At 79$ and Apple's rather steep increment in features (especially templates) I guess it's worth it.

    Office sells at some exorbitant price of 400$ so Upgrades make sense or people won't swallow it anymore.
